I don't think I have ever met the now former Kenly Police Chief, but I do know his wife. She was a manager at a restaurant that my wife and I frequented. We used to talk quite a bit sometimes. She pretty much knew our orders before we asked. From time to time, I see her at Wal-Mart or around town. The restaurant went out of business about a year ago, but my understanding is that she found a decent job. Now her husband needs to find one. Why would anyone jeopardize a job, a reputation, and an employment record in this manner? I am seeing it often. Unfortunately, because of abuse such as this, other employees pay the price in restrictions of company trust towards employees. I deal with this regularly. Either way, it is not worth risking your job over this.
I wish I knew how to get a room at the Hilton Garden in Kitty Hawk that cheap.
Kenly Police Chief Fired For Misusing Town Credit Card - Kenly Police Chief David Mangum is off the job and now the focus of a criminal investigation by the SBI. Town Manager Scott Shelton and Mayor Tooie Hales met with Mangum on Saturday before he was fired. District Attorney Tom Lock confirmed the town manager met with him on Friday, one day before Mangum was terminated, to discuss the possible misappropriation of funds with a town credit card. The amount of money reportedly mishandled isn’t known, but an SBI investigation will get underway this week that should uncover those facts. WMPM News obtained a copy of the credit card statements under the NC Public Records Law. The credit card reportedly issued to the Kenly police chief includes expenses such as $648.14 for a Carnival Cruise ticket, $359.38 for a JCPenny catalog order, $37.25 for a room and movie at Hilton Garden Inn at Kitty Hawk, $96.27 for clothes at Tommy Hilfiger in Smithfield, $52.01 at Smoker’s Express in Raleigh, to $18.96 for fire ant killer at Lowe’s in Smithfield. David Mangum had been Kenly’s top cop for the past five years. He was making an annual salary of $38,375. Sgt. Josh Gibson has been named acting police chief. Town Manager Shelton said citizens of Kenly would have adequate police protection.
